I have been using Reynolds Wrap as long as I have been cooking. I started cooking when I was around 8 years old. I started in the kitchen with my grandmother who was an amazing cook. She taught me to make scrambled eggs, then we worked on the rest of the
breakfast foods such as pancakes,…
I love to cook and entertain. Nothing makes me happier than having a house full of friends and family. To me good food and good company go hand in hand. When people are enjoying the food that I made, it warms my soul.
My favorite things to cook
This is a tough one...I love to cook most everything. I am most interested in mediterranean cooking, but Thai cooking is also something I enjoy. I also love to grill and of course, I love good old down home southern cooking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My absolute favorite tradition is cooking the turkey and all of the fixin's for Thanksgiving. I alternate the turkey from year to year, switching between 2 different recipes, but the sides are pretty much the regular traditional stuff. I do, however, try to .lighten up the recipes whenever possible
My cooking triumphs
My triumphs happen when the people I am cooking for ask for seconds or when they ask me for the recipe! Nothing makes me happier than seeing people enjoying my food.
For me, cooking = love!
My cooking tragedies
I recently made a dish that was simply awful! I purchase a rack of lamb from the grocery store that was, well let's just say, past it's prime! The entire house filled up with a VERY rancid smell that even the neighborhood dogs crossed the street to avoid walking past my house! I ended up throwing the entire thing out. It doesn't happen to me as a rule because there is always something you can do to make it come out alright. Not this time though. It was a disaster! Rancid meat is just that! The next time I was in that store, I mentioned it to the meat manager. I still had my receipt, but the product and it's packaging were long gone. He made it right and gave me a new one. I will always buy my meat from him from now on!
